​"Mr Brightside"Edit

I'm coming out of my cage

And I’ve been doing just fine

Gotta gotta be down

Because I want it all

Ashfur stared around the camp, his mind swimming with bitter emotion. He had been great- until perfect Brambleclaw trotted round the corner and stole Squirrelflight from him. Now he lived in a world of blue, never being able to see the passion burning in those bright green eyes as she looked at him.

Squirrelflight had stolen his heart- and then in a heartbeat began flirting with another tom- an ugly dark tabby- the son of Tigerstar. Squirrelflight ran around breaking hearts. Everyone else in the Clan had someone- but now I had nobody. I was a hollow shell of the cat I was.

He sat in the dappled sunlight, his blue eyes showing troubled thoughts, tiny storms brewing within. Upon the moss laden tree stump he remained, in a daze, lost in swirls of memories, once so happy, but now so sad and unwanted.

She was not there for him- no ginger she-cat by his side. He wanted her- he needed her more than pretty-boy Brambleclaw ever could. But she failed to recognise this, and so Ashfur trailed off, not wanting to think about her.

It started out with a kiss

How did it end up like this?

It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss

Now I’m falling asleep

"Brambleclaw!" Ashfur was jolted awake by Squirrelflight's joyful squeak of the name Ashfur now loathed. His eyes flashed with anger and he hissed hoarsely- fuming, he stared out the dark ginger she-cat.

Was he only ever Squirrelflight's plaything?

"Squirrelflight!" Brambleclaw chuckled, throwing a pawful of drenched moss at her. Ashfur found himself chortling as Squirrelflight as hit by it. 

It had only been a question- how on earth had things gone so wrong?

Ashfur found himself drifting off.

And she’s calling a cab

While he’s having a smoke

And she’s taking a drag

Now they’re going to bed

"Brambleclaw... can I go on patrol with you?" Ashfur's heart aggrieved, he staggered to his paws, hoping that Squirrelflight wouldn't see the tears welling in his ice blue yes. "Why did you betray me?" he murmured desperately.

WIP

And my stomach is sick

And it’s all in my head

But she’s touching his chest

Now, he takes off her dress

Now, letting me go

And I just can’t look - it's killing me

And taking control

Jealousy, turning saints into the sea

Turning through sick lullabies

Choking on your alibis

But it’s just the price I pay

Destiny is calling me

Open up my eager eyes

‘Cause I’m Mr Brightside

I’m coming out of my cage

And I’ve been doing just fine

Gotta gotta be down

Because I want it all

It started out with a kiss

How did it end up like this?

It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss

Now I’m falling asleep

And she’s calling a cab

While he’s having a smoke

And she’s taking a drag

Now they’re going to bed

And my stomach is sick

And it’s all in my head

But she’s touching his chest

Now, he takes off her dress

Now, letting me go

'Cause I just can’t look - it's killing me

And taking control

Jealousy, turning saints into the sea

Turning through sick lullabies

Choking on your alibis

But it’s just the price I pay

Destiny is calling me

Open up my eager eyes

‘Cause I’m Mr Brightside

I never...

I never...

I never...

I never...
